Poetry: The Heartbeat of English

Tue, 05/17/2016 - 16:49 -- Bmcches

English class is not for me


Essays and speeches

I don't like to see


Grammar lessons

Just let me be


Reading books

Not my cup of Tea


But Poetry, oh Poetry

The heartbeat of english I like to see


That section of the year

that I can actually hear


The Best type of writing

that keeps some fighting


My english teacher said

Poetry is good for the head


But I felt it would

Run more through my blood


Straight to the heart

Thats where Poetry starts
